Thriveworks Starting Counseling Franchise

Thriveworks® is excited to announce that we are in the process of Franchising!

(Update!! Therapy Franchises Now Available!)

What does this mean?

This means that our plan is to begin offering Thriveworks Counseling Franchises at some point this summer. To date, there is no franchise opportunity for counseling, psychotherapy, or mental health. But when we finish the franchising process, counselors will be able to operate their own Thriveworks Counseling practices!

Can you give me all the details?

We cannot! Franchising is a very regulated process, and we’re legally limited as to what we can reveal until all our paperwork is approved by the right government departments. After the process of franchising is completed, we will be able to announce more details.

Why would someone want to own a counseling franchise?

That’s a great question. We can only speak in generalities at this point, but hypothetically a counseling franchise could allow clinicians to focus more on what they love (seeing clients) and less on developing business operations. In general, a franchise is supposed to be a turn-key business, which means a franchisee won’t need to “re-invent the wheel.” Often, with many franchises, the franchisees also benefit from ongoing business support.
